The way he smothered Lee was impressive.
I'm not confusing him with Hearns because I said I think he'd wear him down with his volume punching and durability. Hearns was a one-punch knockout artist. Martinez is more accurate than Golovkin and Martinez was fine. It's anybody's fight, but Chavez has been tested at a higher level and is a competent swarmer. I think he might have an easier time landing on GGG than the reverse, and in a firefight, he'd take GGG's shots better than GGG would over 12.
